SUMMER IN THE CITY
How about a cultural trip through the city of Zurich? Or would you prefer a nature experience on the hotel pedalo on Lake Zurich? Stand Up Paddle and cooling cocktails on Zurich's most famous roof terrace? We make it possible!
Our Summer in the City offers are as individual as your travel wishes. They range from a romantic tête à tête in the city's most exclusive locations - Table for two - to water fun for the whole family. For the culinary variety in between and after, our hotel complex with two hotels will take care of it.

In late January, a panel discussion will take place at the hotel to explore what design and hospitality have in common.BOOK NOW
